After lighting a candle for approximately a half an hour she heard a crack. She noticed that the glass candle holder cracked. The consumer noticed that the wick is formed on the side of the candle instead of the center of it.

The consumer indicated that this is the third failure that she has experience with the same brand candles. The failure has occurred week apart from each other in 2/2012.

She contacted the retailer the week 2/20/2012 and bought the hazard to their attention. The consumer indicated that the retailer only offered to replace the candle.

The consumer has not contacted the firm and does not plan on contacting them. The consumer stated that the candle could pose as a fire hazard.

Comment from Langley/Empire Candle Company 3/23/2012
Please be assured that our products are held to the highest standard of processing and all of our wicks are centered in each of our candles during production. We do not know how long the candle was used before the incident occured, in what manner and location the product was used or if the integrity of the glass was compromised at any time since leaving our facility. Having such little information will make it very difficult to substantiate any potential hazard claims with this product. To reiterate, all wicks are centered and held centered until the candle has completely congealed.
